I had the great fortune of being Jacqelle's colleague. She immediately stood out to me as a person who has a persistent and unwavering focus on driving success for herself and those around her. On a regular basis I saw her work with both adults and youth who on their bad days could be challenging, obstinate, or flat out difficult. Jacqelle always maneuvered these situations with grace, determination, and a smile on her face. I was continually impressed with her professionalism; her ability to champion what was best for those with whom she worked while always exhibiting a positive and infections disposition. In a short period of time, she became a good friend and confidant who was quick to support and listen when I needed it most. She was always there for a great laugh or an infectious story as well. Most importantly, she wanted to celebrate the successes. I have fond memories working with Jacqelle, and highly recommend anyone jump at the opportunity to work with her or partner with her.
